Accusing the government of ‘conspiring’ to destabilise the country to cling to power, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday cautioned his party colleagues not to take any reckless decision.
Fakhrul came up with the statement on Saturday following the demolition of an under-construction sculpture of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and vandalism of a BNP office in Kushtia district.
Miscreants vandalised an under-construction sculpture of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in Kushtia city early Saturday. The face and hands of the sculpture were damaged.
In an oblique reference to the incident, Fakhrul said no one, except the Awai League (AL) men, can carry out such a misdeed at this time of its rule. “You (AL) can do it in a bid to hang onto power by creating a chaotic situation.”
"It's part of a deep-rooted blueprint. They (ruling party) want to destabilise Bangladesh again and torture the soldiers of democracy by shifting blame onto them for what they didn’t do,” he alleged while addressing a discussion in Dhaka on Sunday, reports UNB.
“After vandalising our BNP office in Kushtia yesterday (Saturday), our local general secretary’s business establishment there was torched,” he said.
Pointing at BNP leaders and activists, he said they must go forward through a tough struggle to reach the desired goal. “Keep it in mind that you’ll never be disappointed and never be reckless. We’ve to move forward with patience instead of taking any imprudent decision.”
